Gaza Arabs Celebrate Boston Marathon Attack with Dance, Candies

Mike L.

Shortly after the bombs exploded at the Boston Marathon, the Arabs of Gaza danced in the streets, handing out candies to passersby, Israel News Agency reported. 
Mohammad al-Chalabi, head of a Jordanian Salafi group, said on Tuesday that he was “happy to see the horror in America’ after the explosions in Boston,” the Daily Mail reported. “American blood isn’t more precious than Muslim blood,” al-Chalabi added. “Let the Americans feel the pain we endured by their armies occupying Iraq and Afghanistan and killing our people there,”

According to the Christian Science Monitor, Somalia’s Al Shabaab mocked the blast victims on its official Twitter feed, and used the attack as an opportunity to criticize U.S. policy. “The #BostonBombings are just a tiny fraction of what US soldiers inflict upon millions of innocent Muslims across the globe on a daily basis,” read one tweet.
Whatever one makes of the fashionable post-colonial view that the Jews and the west deserve vitriol, if not violence, for being mean to others there is no question that neither westerners, nor Jews, hand out candy when people are murdered.



  1. Shurely this is shome mishtake? Perhaps a coincidence and they were celebrating shomething else? Or a mistranslation, like always. First they can't get Farsi right, and now......

    1. I think that we finally, really - at long last - need to understand that we are in a war, Doodad.

      I do not know what other possible conclusion to draw? The hostile Arab majority launched a racist war against the Jews of the Middle East around 1920 and it is a war that continues to this day.

      And that's when things were relatively good because before that we were in dhimmitude, which is a form of enslavement.

      The only thing that we can do, I suppose, is help awaken diaspora Jewry, and American Jewry, to the fact that the Jews of the Middle East are under siege and that their fight needs to be our fight.

      The least that we can do, it seems to me, is stand up and speak straight about what is unfolding before our very eyes.

      If we don't, who will?

      {And so I thank you, my brother.}
